Bastet - Daughter of the sun god Ra, wife of Ptah, and mother of Mihos, Bastet is an ancient Egyptian goddess who is still greatly revered by many today.
Her worship began around the year 3200 BCE during the second dynasty in northern Egypt and her city is Bubastis. There, and in many other ancient cities, Egyptians celebrated Bastet's feast day, October 31st, with great joy and enthusiasm honouring their goddess, their protectress.
Related to Neith, the Night Goddess, Bast symbolized the moon in its function of making a woman fruitful, with swelling womb. She was also the Egyptian Goddess of pleasure, music, dancing and joy, and associated with the Eye of Ra, acting as the instrument of the Sun God's vengeance.
